Zoolander 2 - Relax Trailer


Though Derek and Hansel have left the world of fashion modelling behind them, a part of both of them still has the wish to return to the stage and once again be crowned as the king of the runway. When some of the world's most famous celebrities are found murdered (all of whom have died pulling Derek's trademark Blue Steel pout) Interpol decide to recruit the two fashion veterans in a bid to infiltrate the current world of modelling - an industry that's evolved beyond the one they were originally accustom to.

Zoolander 2 - Teaser Trailer


After a disastrous return to the fashion industry following his retirement, which almost ended in the death of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Derek Zoolander is once again ready to make a comeback. This time he has his former rival turned best friend Hansel by his side, and a better reputation after he exposed the evil behind the fashion industry and went on to work with children. Life may be good; he has a wife and son, and a bucket load of runway talent; but things are about to get messy once again. Derek and Hansel aren't as relevent as they used to be in the industry, and their careers face series threats when it becomes clear that a rival organisation is planning to take down their new modelling agency. Can the duo save the day once again? Or will they be forced to give up the strut for good?

Addicted To Fresno Trailer


After her sister Shannon returns to Fresno, California following her stint in rehab for sex addiction (which in turn came after she was fired as a schoolteacher), Martha takes it upon herself to help her get a fresh start. She invites her to stay with her and gets her a job as a hotel maid in Fresno Suites where Martha also works. It isn't long before Shannon relapses big time, and her failure to maintain responsibility results in her accidentally killing a hotel guest, who also happens to be an Olympic hammer-thrower. She manages to persuade Martha to help hide the body, but before they can get very far they are discovered by a couple named Ruby and Gerald - and they want $25,000 in three days to stay quiet about the incident. The only option they have is to commit more crime, and so they rob a sex shop in order to flog the stock and make up the money. They're hardly professionals and they'll be lucky to escape this mess scot free, but maybe Shannon can finally learn to think about others before herself.

Plot Twist: Seth Meyers Taps Former "SNL" Co-Star Fred Armisen To Lead "Late Night" Band


Fred Armisen Seth Meyers Jimmy Fallon

NBC stars definitely like to keep it in the family. So when it came time for Seth Meyers to pick someone to lead the band on his newly acquired show Late Night (previously hosted by Jimmy Fallon, who has moved on to The Tonight Show), Meyers picked a familiar face. According to TV Guide, he tapped former SNL co-star Fred Armisen, who has plenty of musical experience alongside his comedy work.

Fred ArmisenSeth Meyers, Ed Sullivan Theater
Armisen obviously has the experience Meyers needs, just look at this picture of him holding a guiter.

Before going into comedy, Armisen played drums in the punk rock band Trenchmouth and in the Blue Man group back in the 1990s. He also often played musical instruments during sketches on SNL. Armisen, who left SNL last year, is currently starring in and executive producing his IFC comedy series Portlandia, alongside co-star and co-creator Carrie Brownstein. However, Meyers mentioned this in the announcement and it sounds like the comedian’s new commitment won’t interfere with his Portlandia duties (thankfully).

Ben Affleck Gets To Re-Visit Argo, Again, And Re-Do His Marriage On SNL


Ben Affleck Saturday Night Live Kanye West Fred Armisen Bill Hader

Ben Affleck was a fitting host for the last episode in the current series of Saturday Night Live, with the Oscar winner providing ample personality, humour and taste in an episode where he was very much overshadowed by other cast-members and guests. Before the show the real emphasis was on Kanye West's appearance, with audiences hotly anticipating whether the rapper had any new material to offer, as well as the end of Bill Hader and Fred Armisen's (and apparently Jason Sudeikis) run on the show.

So Affleck needed to do something fresh and original to try and distract the audience before Yeezy's performance and the final few sketches of the departing SNL-ers, unfortunately though Argo jokes just aren't that funny or original anymore. Even Armisen's slightly amusing impersonation of Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad failed to lift the sketch, nor did Affleck insistence that he only made the fake movie in Argo because he’s “long been looking to appear in a movie worse than Gigli.” (Really, we're still making jokes about Gigli).

Smurfs 2: I'm Too Smurfy - Clip


The Smurfs are back in a brilliant movie sequel that sees them take on evil magician Gargamel for a second time as he makes another attempt at harnessing the blue power of the Smurf people. This time, he has successfully created a group of similar creatures called Naughties, which he has plans to use to lure the impressionable Smurfette to him in order to finally win their potent magic. Aware of the kidnapping, the rest of the Smurfs band together on a rescue mission alongside their human acquaintances Patrick and Grace Winslow who agree to help them get to Smurfette and convince her that she belongs at home.

Right Said Fred, the nineties duo responsible for the number one 1991 hit 'I'm Too Sexy', has got involved in the promotions for the new film, marking the celebrations of Global Smurfs Day on June 22nd 2013, the day after 'The Smurfs 2' is released on the 21st. They have recorded a brand new track called 'I'm Too Smurfy', which isn't too dissimilar from their debut hit as you'd imagine, in a video featuring people in Smurf costumes getting funky and the duo painting their faces blue in honour of the Smurfs' return.

The Smurfs 2 Trailer


The Smurfs return following a harrowing experience lost in New York while being pursued by the evil wannabe wizard Gargamel in 'The Smurfs'. Their plight is not over, however, as Gargamel will stop at nothing to harness the power of the blue creatures. Currently an icon of sorcery in Paris, he creates two Smurf-like creatures called Naughties who he uses to tempt the impressionable Smurfette in a life of mischief as she holds the valuable secret of the spell to turn the Naughties into real Smurfs. After she is kidnapped, her family and friends embark on a mission to save her, whether she wants to be or not, and enlists the help of their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow to take down Gargamel once and for all and lead Smurfette back on the straight and narrow.

The Dictator Review


Very Good
This may look like a wildly irreverent satire about a North African despot, but it doesn't take long to realise that the filmmakers' target is somewhere else.

And the biting script never pulls its punches, leaping us laughing at the audacity while making a serious point.

Aladeen (Baron Cohen) is the pampered dictator of Wadiya, who travels to New York to tell the UN to stop nosing around his nuclear "energy" plants. But his Uncle Tamir (Kingsley) is plotting to kill him and replace him with a double who will sign a democratic constitution essentially selling the country to oil companies. Aladeen manages to escape, but no one recognises him cleanly shaven, so he teams up with health-food activist Zoey (Faris) and a countryman (Mantzoukas) to get his country back.

The Smurfs Review


OK
A simplistic approach means that this charming adventure-comedy will only appeal to very young children. While it's lively and enjoyably silly, there's just not enough wit in the story or characters, nor enough skill in the animation.

Life is idyllic for the tiny blue Smurfs, whose village is hidden from view in a European valley. But the evil-but-hapless wizard Gargamel (Azaria) wants to capture their magical essence and, when he finds their village, he chases six of them through a vortex that dumps them into Manhattan. Lost in the city, the Smurfs befriend Patrick (Harris) and his pregnant wife Grace (Mays), whose help they need to both escape Gargamel and regenerate the vortex to get home.

Meanwhile, Patrick's under pressure from his boss (Vergara) to come up with an ad campaign.
